Such an event lookedhopelessly improbable until thepapacy of the saintly John XXIII.But the changes he set in motionbave suddenly made it reasonableto envision Protestant, Catholic, andOrthodox Christians worshippingtogether.If this seems grandiose, well— it is.The Church is, of course, very farfrom organizational union. It is noteven ready to start talking aboutthat. The wings of Christendombave long pursued separate courses,insulated from one another inthought, as well as form.Merely to create circumstances inwhich différent breeds of Christiantheologians can discuss Christianitytogether is no mean task. Beforesuch dialogue can be fruitful theremust be participants well versedin alternate modes of Christianthought, able to explore historicallythorny issues both capably and dis-passionately. Such men are, to saythe least, rare. There is probably no greater collection of them anywhere in theworld than on the faculty of theDivinity School of The Universityof Chicago. Hère the tradition isecumenical. The School is part of auniversity long known for its hos-pitality to scholarly dialogue. Itspeople are already deeply involvedin the religious movements of ourtime and its leadership is alive tothe rôle the School can play inopening long-closed avenues ofcommunication among Christians.This spring's visit of Leon-JosefCardinal Suenens, Archbishop ofMalines-Brussells, described in thisissue, is the most récent évidence ofthe School's ability to foster inter-faith dialogue. The first of severalrécent ecumenical meetings on theQuadrangles occurred in the springof 1962, when Karl Barth was hère."I do not think that in Switzer-land I could bave had an oppor-tunity to engage in a discussionwith libérais, Jews, and even RomanCatholic theologians together,"Barth said on that occasion. "Thiswas something very new for me."For the Barth visit, the Schoolarranged informai evening discussions among participants represent-ing a half-dozen persuasions in theJudéo-Christian tradition, drawnfrom institutions across the country.For most, it was the first opportuni-ty to discuss the major theologicalcréation of this century with itsauthor.The following January, the SchoolJUNE, 1964 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 3helped open the new Center forContinuing Education at the University by co-sponsoring a conférence on "Radiation and SocialEthics." Hère, too, the participantsrepresented a variety of ethical andtheological positions.A Jewish - Protestant colloquium,"Perspectives on the Good Society/'was jointly sponsored by the Schooland the Anti-Def amation League ofB nai B'rith in the spring of 1963.Among the speakers were PaulRicoeur, professor of metaphysicsat the Sorbonne, and Dore Schary,the motion picture executive.The School shortly thereafter an-nounced its intention to establish achair of Jewish Life and Thought,an undertaking for which the neces-sary funds are now being raised.This will apparently be the firstsuch professorship in any Protestanttheological institution in America.As reported in greater détail inthe succeeding article, création of asimilar chair in Catholic studies wasinvited by the School during Cardinal Suenens' récent visit.Already on the schedule is afurther Protestant - Catholic colloquium, which Dean Jerald C.Brauer is chairing, to be held inDecember under joint sponsorshipof thirty theological institutions.This surge of ecumenical activitytestifies to the energetic leadershipof Dean Brauer. A youthful-appear-ing 42, he has just started his tenthyear as Divinity dean. This makeshim next-to-youngest of the currentdivisional and professional-schooldeans at the University, but thesenior man among them in lengthof service.But the Divinity School is thefarthest thing from a one-manshow. Its contribution to ecumen-icity is made possible by its faculty,which is of such distinction that aninvitation to lecture at Chicago isvirtually a command performancefor a theologian. It is clearly thepre-eminent theological faculty inAmerica today. Naming s orne ofthe faculty members now heavilvengaged in interfaith activities willdemonstrate why.Heading any such list is, ofcourse, Paul Tillich, whose place onthis side of the Atlantic is like Barth's on the Continent. Mr. Tillich came to Chicago in 1962 onthe John Nuveen Chair in theology.The third volume of his SystematicTheology, one of the landmark theological works of this génération,has just been issued by the University of Chicago Press.Scarcely less renowned is MirceaEliade, now Sewell L. Avery Distin-guished Service Professor. Mr.Eliade, a native Rumanian, is him-self a communicant in the Easternrites of the Orthodox Church. Hisprésence on the faculty means continuing contact not only with bothCatholic and Orthodox theologians,but with the leaders of the world'sother great religions as well. Bycompétent opinion, Mr. Eliade isthe ranking historian of religionsanywhere in the world.Robert M. Grant, the School'sranking scholar in patristics andGnosticism, is another with manycontacts with Catholic seminarians.This is natural in light of his fields,which involve the early history ofthe Church, but especially usefulas the School moves to expandinterfaith colloquy.Joseph Sittler is chairman both ofthe Committee on Worship of theNational Council of Churches andthe North American Commission onWorship of the World Council ofChurches.J. Coert Rylaarsdam, Professor ofOld Testament Theology, is bestknown of the Chicago men toJewish scholars. He is constantly indemand as a speaker and participant in Jewish - Christian conférences.Martin E. Marty was among the100 outstanding young men inAmerica chosen in 1962 by Lifemagazine. Only 36, he has gained acommanding réputation as associateeditor of the respected non-denomi-national Protestant journal, TheChristian Century.In that quickening aspect of ecumenical Christianity concernedwith civil rights and social justice,Gibson Winter is deeply involved.Well known as the author ofThe Suburban Captivity of theChurches, he is active in manyinner-city organizations in Chicago.Finally, Dean Brauer is himself achurch historian of no small note and is currently président of theBoard of Theological Education ofthe Lutheran Church in America.He will be an officiai observer forthe World Council of Churches atthe next session of the EcumenicalCouncil, Vatican II.This is but a sampling of a faculty which comprises about a dozenvarieties of Christian persuasion(in thèse days of merger, countingdénominations is not so simple),the broadest such représentationon any American theological faculty.Their students, who now number270 plus another 60 who take somework in the Divinity School whileprimarily enrolled at one of theother seminaries ringing the University, are a mix of some thirtyaffiliations. Seven dénominations(Baptist, Lutheran, Methodist,United Church of Christ, Disciples,Unitarian, and Presbyterian) arerepresented by at least 25 students.Ecumenicity in the DivinitySchool today is, moreover, but thelatest flower of a long tradition.Those who react with surprise— assome do— in the présence of a flour-ishing theological center in the hu-manistically inclined University ofChicago hâve got their historybackwards. The Divinity Schoolwas the taproot of the University.Originally the Baptist UnionTheological Seminary, the Schoolfurnished the first impetus for cre-ating the U. of C. and then joinedits création. The meteoric careerof William Rainey Harper beganon the faculty of the Seminary,where he taught in 1879-86; andofficers of the Seminary were thefirst to propose their former col-league for the presidency of a newU. of C. and then worked assidu-ously to make the proposai a reality.Having once spawned a university, the Divinity School is nowbent toward a vastly more complextask: fostering the dialogue out ofwhich the fragments of organizedChristianity may find the groundsfor eventual reunion. The goal maybe générations away, but the cleav-ages of centuries will not be knitin any surer way.-H.R.H.4 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE JUNE, 1964wsà) t/eu> fôoohô f-romThe University of Chicago PressThe Chicago School of Architecture — by Cari W.

The difficulties of providingfood are compounded at the University,where there are many levels and âgesof students variously living in résidencehalls, apartments and lodging rooms,plus a relatively small proportion ofcommuters. Ail of them, including themarried ones, want to be fed at someunpredictable time or another.Whenever the University makes achange there is a reaction, and so thisspring, when a contract plan was an-nounced for the résidents of Wood-ward Court, the new hall at 58th andWoodlawn, some 500 students picketedthe dining room in orderly but firmfashion for four days, producing, ac-cording to their daims, a 91 percentloss in patronage.In 1962, a poil was conducted todétermine the desires of the résidents.The results were far from unanimous,but the majority in Pierce and Wood-ward wanted a cash basis and Burton-Judson voted to stay on contract. Thechange produced messy conséquences;the halls took on a tenement qualitywhen some students undertook to produce their own meals, with neither theproper nor even légal facilities forcooking or for food storage and disposai. The cohésion of the halls suf-fered because there was a shiftinggroup at irregular times instead of thegroup meals. The practice of invitingfaculty guests to meals also had to beabandoned.For 1963, Pierce went back on alunch and dinner contract and therehas been an apparent improvement inspirit and identity among the résidents.Woodward stayed on a cash plan. Assuch, it also was one of the public eat-ing places, not only for members ofthe University staff and faculty, butfor outsiders. Partly to limit the diningroom to résidents and partly to eut thedéficit that uncertain patronage created,the University this spring announcedthat Woodward in the autumn would go on a contract for lunch and dinnerat $187 for the eleven week quarter.Some of the students countered witha proposai that lunch be on a cash basisand that the contract apply only for sixdinners a week. Contending that theyhadn't been consulted and that theiroffer of compromise had in effect beenrejected, they organized the picketing.After this fling, the discussions con- tinued. The latest stage is a tentativeoffer from the University for a contractproviding breakfast and dinner for$155 a quarter. Lunch would continueon a cash basis and for that meal thedining room would continue open tothe gênerai University public.There is a plan to remodel the oldkitchen area of Ida Noyés Hall into anew "Cloister Club'' with a charcoalSpécial Picture of the Month: Final emplacement and dedication ofPevsner sculpture at the Law School (see this Magazine, October 1963).From left to right: Phil C.

Such a service as aCloister Club is imperative; the students presently hâve no satisfactoryplace in which they can meet at offhours over light food or a cup of coffee.Hutchinson Commons appears tohâve no future as a place to eat, and asurvey is being made to détermine if itcan be converted to an auditorium forthe Department of Music and if theadjacent "C" Shop can be used forthe music library.Since i960 the University has re-quired undergraduate men in their firsttwo years and undergraduate women ofail four years to live in résidence hallsuntil they became 21. There were exceptions; men who joined fraternitieswere allowed to live in houses in theirsecond year; anyone who lived at homewas exempt and a * petitioning" Systemexcused many others. Now the résidence requirement has been suspendedcompletely for second-year men andthird- and fourth-year women, largelybecause it was unrealistic with a grow-ing shortage in résidence hall rooms.A $5 a quarter increase in résidencehall rentals will be effective in theautumn. The Chicago Maroon re-sponded with an editorial that chargeda plot to take the University away fromthe students. It cited as évidence a longand disparate list of moves, includingthe declining number of comprehensiveexaminations, increases in tuition overthe years and an alleged f ailure of theadministration to make a ringing déclaration that big time football was not inthe offing. The editorial and the mis-statéments in the reporting of the contract for food drew a tart correctiveletter from Dean of Students WarnerA. Wick.Like hospital bills, higher éducationcosts are steadily rising. Some measureof this increase, which may corne as ashock to those aiumni who rememberthe days when tuition was $40 a quarter and a large single room was $32, isindicated by the budget estimâtes theUniversity uses as a guide to prospective students. Those in résidence hallswill need $3250 for ail expenses in thenext académie year; apartment résidents, $2750, and commuters, $2450.Students on scholarships will get a$250 increase in the budget on whichJUNE, 1964 THE need is fîgured, that figure being theamount by which costs hâve risen overlast year. This increase is not uniqueto the University; it prevails generally.So may ail the sons and daughters ofaiumni be as smart as their parents andwin scholarships!QUANTRELL AWARDS— Thisyear's four winners of the annual Llew-ellyn John and Harriet ManchesterQuantrell Awards for excellence in undergraduate teaching were: SylvainBromberger, assistant professor in theDepartment of Philosophy and ofPhysical Sciences in the Collège; JohnG.

'JUNE, 1964 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE 9of the Church generally, as that of service, the qualityof service found in the simplicity of early Christianity.He would expand the opportunities for service to ailthe faithful as is évident from thèse words to his people in Belgium: "I am bishop for you but Christianwith you."Walter Abbott, S.J., in a book about the leadershipof the Second Ecumenical Vatican Council, said ofthe Belgian prelate: "He has been an archbishop onlysince 1961, and a cardinal only since 1962, but this59-year-old Churchman has achieved things that few,if any, of his predecessors could match."The Cardinal's rôle in the Second Ecumenical Vatican Council has been especially prominent, both priorto and during the convening of this body.The late Pope John, particularly impressed by apastoral letter of the Cardinal's on the Council, askedfor a document from the Belgian spelling out his viewson the assembly.In response, Cardinal Suenens developed a planwhich was later adopted to guide Vatican II, a planwhich early won the support of Cardinal Montini,soon to become Pope Paul VI. The plan has seen theCouncil gravitating around the thème of the Churchas viewed under a double perspective. First, theChurch from within, that is the dialogue in the Church10 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE JUNE, 1964among its members individually and collectively, andthe Church viewed exteriorly, that is the dialogue be-tween the Church and ail Christians in the world.At the second session of Vatican II last fall, Cardinal Suenens became one of the four cardinal moderat-ors upon appointment by Pope Paul. It is in this rôlethat he has achieved récognition as a leader of Ca-tholicism, particularly within the so-called "libéral"movement (although he disapproves of "labels"), andin the ecumenical dialogue.Chicago DialogueIn an impact-laden two days, May 4 and 5, CardinalSuenens delivered two major lectures, met with theDivinity School faculty and students, and participatedin panel discussions to which Catholic and Protestantclergy, faculty and students from the Chicago areawere invited.The two days of discussion, dialogue, and formailectures made up the first meeting of its kind in thecountry. For each discussion group, Cardinal Suenenswas a member of a panel including six others, equallydivided between Protestants and Roman Catholics.Issues submitted by the panelists ranged over the en-tire spectrum of the ecumenical movement as well asVatican II.From the infallibility of the Pope and the positionof Mary to methods of birth control, questions of majorconcern were frankly voiced and discussed. Askedabout intolérance of other religions in some numeri-cally dominant Catholic countries, Cardinal Suenensrevealed that a forthcoming pronouncement from theCouncil will clearly assert the right for ail to libertyof conscience and religion. Anyone who might hâveexpected ready-made answers and solutions to ailproblems, however, would hâve been sorely disap-pointed. But the dialogue is there, and it is clear thatthis can be a start for men who are united in theirdésire to serve God and mankind.Said Cardinal Suenens in the first of his two lectures:"The Church is divine and human at the same time.Since it is made up of men who bear the treasures ofGod in fragile vessels, it is constantly faced with theneed of purification, of a perpétuai return to itssources."JUNE, 1964 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE. . . there are fewready-made answers,but the dialogueis a beginning In examining doctrinal différences, he urged thatsuch différences cannot be approached in the abstract,without an examination of the historical situationwhich caused such différences: "It was not Mary thatLuther was combatting; it was certain abuses inMariology. It was not the idea of the episcopacy orthe idea of the papacy which were first attacked; itwas their historical realization in men of flesh andblood, men of a spécifie time and a spécifie environ-ment who were inevitably influenced by that time andenvironment. We must hâve the ability to recognizethe object of protest if we are ever going to appre-ciate the character of the reaction which it evokedand the germ of truth which animated it. Once wehâve recovered our historical perspective, a greatmany thèses which hâve been petrified by the processof abstraction will profit from a suppleness and feelingfor nuance which can reconcile in synthesis factorswhich are not contradictory but complementary."Pointing out that common cause now exists in manyvital areas he went on: "We must also make more ofcertain forms of practical collaboration, notably inthe social and humanitarian field: the problem ofhunger in the world, sickness and disasters, birth andhousing, illiteracy, redistribution of wealth, etc. In anera in which ail men are conscious of the existence ofextremely critical problems, it is essential that thedisciples of Christ be able, as Christians, and withoutpassing over or minimizing their différences, to gettogether and make common cause in every kind ofmutual coopération and assistance. We must increaseour prayer, too, with a view to hastening the day ofvisible unity." But he also cautioned that unity mustnot be confused with uniformity. "The Church ofChrist is one. But its unity dwells in the depths ofmystery. It does not dispense with the diversity ofgifts and charisms any more than it dispenses with thediversity of languages and cultures."It is of crucial importance for us to appreciate thefact that the Church, which is independent of ail cultures, is nonetheless open to every culture. In theirregard, the Church is transcendent— since she is not ofthis world; and yet, she is incarnate in each— like theleaven in the dough which can never be separatedfrom it." Cardinal Suenens called for "Respect for thisunity in diversity."CHICAGO MAGAZINE JUNE, 1964Toward Study and DialogueCardinal Suenens' appearance as the 1964 HiramW. Thomas Lecturer may well prove to be the openingof a new epoch in Roman Catholic-Protestant relationsin the United States. His visit is being widely discussednationally. At the University it has given additionalimpetus to a plan, already approved by the DivinitySchool's faculty and trustées, to endow a permanent,year-round Chair of Roman Catholic Life and Thoughtas part of the School's lOOth anniversary during the1964-65 académie year. Such a Chair would bring tothe University each year a différent, leading RomanCatholic scholar.In reflecting on the CardinaFs visit, Dean Brauercommented: "The Divinity School and the Universityhâve just experienced a unique and exhilarating twodays. Hopefully, it marks a new epoch for us and ourRoman Catholic brethren."For the more than 700 faculty, clergy and studentsthe CardinaFs receptiveness, frankness and abundantgood humor clearly demonstrated the conditions nec-essary for dialogue. As Cardinal Suenens repeatedlystated: "We must first sit down together and learn toknow each other. We must learn to speak each other'slanguage; then we can corne to love one another. . . ."Commenting on the future possibility of Churchunity, he closed the first of his lectures with thèsewords: "Yes, we are face to face with the impossible.Yes, the doctrinal barriers appear and indeed are, forthe moment, insurmountable from the human pointof view; but Christ himself has told us that Vhatis impossible with man is possible with God' (Luke18:27). It is possible with God when his children givethemselves over completely to the action of grâce andthus become the artisans of that possibility."After leaving Chicago, the Cardinal lunched inNew York with Time-Life publisher Henry Luce. Itwas reported in Time that "the primate of Belgiumhad his hardest ( and finest ) moment at The Universityof Chicago Divinity School where he spent two daysfielding questions from his Protestant hosts, includingprestigious theologian Paul Tillich. 'The most difficultexamination I've ever faced,' he said."And seemingly everyone agreed: It could not hâvebeen even possible, just a few years ago.

Reedy, Jr., '38WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARYWhen Pierre Salinger last March 19 made his notunexpected but suddenly timed announcement of hisrésignation as White House Press Secretary to seek theDémocratie nomination for U. S. Senator from Cali-fornia, there was nothing unexpected in the concurrentannouncement of his successor, George E. Reedy, Jr.,'38. The change of the guard was so precipitate, how-ever, that Mr. Reedy was summoned from a hospitalbed where he had been undergoing treatment thatincluded heroic measures to trim a reputed 265 poundson his 6' 2" frame to somewhat more svelte proportions.Spéculation about Président Lyndon B. Johnson'srealignment of the intimate group of advisers andassistants in the White House had included Mr.Reedy 's assumption of the press job because he hadbeen one of Mr. Johnson's staff for 13 years, and second longest of the group in point of service. Therelationship had begun in 1951 when the then SenatorJohnson, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Pre-paredness subcommittee, after observing the Chicagoalumnus reporting the committee's activities, offeredhim the post of committee consultant.As consultant to the Senate committee, Mr. Reedyselected subjects for its hearings and wrote its reports,described as "hard-hitting and critical of défensepolicy." As the then Senator advanced, Mr. Reedymoved with him. He became staff director of the Senate Démocratie Policy Committee in 1953, whenMr. Johnson was minority and then majority leader.He was press représentative for Mr. Johnson, a writerof some of his speeches, and accompanied him onforeign and domestic trips, including the 1960 convention bid for the Démocratie presidential nomination.When Mr. Johnson became Vice Président, Mr.Reedy held the title of spécial assistant, so continuingwhen Mr. Johnson assumed the presidency last No-vember. The long service with Mr. Johnson had dem-onstrated both Mr. Reedy 's loyalty to his chief and hisprofessional competency. The Washington press corpsreported his appointaient as press secretary withfriendliness and note of his qualifications for theposition.William S. White, one of the nationally syndicatedcolumnists wrote in part:"Responsibility sits with a heavy solidity on Reedy'smassive, round shoulders, and it peers soberly throughhis heavy-rimmed glasses. But he is ail business, ailthe time, ail 250 pounds of him. He is also, and quiteunwittingly, a killer of clichés and a destroyer ofstéréotypes."(He) is most clearly and almost painfully not athome on the range. Moreover, he was baked in anincubator for eggheads hardly excelled in cérébralheat by Harvard Collège— The University of Chicago.Président Johnson addresses reporters as Mr. Reedy (foreground right, with glasses), andAssistant Press Secretary Malcolm KUduff, look on.14 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE JUNE, 1964"Reedy is at heart a back-room boy, an idea man,a writer of philosophically studied mémos, an almostdetached clinical worker in politics. . . . With him,the trees can never become so important as the forest.He never will be caught unaware of the large subjectsof presidential policies and presidential attitudes."In a mid-April luncheon talk to the American Association of Newspaper Editors, Mr. Reedy voiced someof his views as to the requirements and purposes ofhis new post."My concept of the White House Press Secretary'soffice is not of a news bureau to grind out handoutsfor the newspapermen and to spoon feed the news orto act as one of the few sources from which the factscan corne. As a second-generation newspaperman, Ihâve a deep belief that news is something to be gath-ered by newspapermen who hâve upon themselvesthe responsibility of gathering facts, of drawing conclusions from those facts, and of attempting to give themsome cohérence and perspective. . . ."I think of the office as one which is responsible foraccountable information. . . . The office of the presi-dency, and the government itself, has grown andreached a point where the full and thorough coverageof the Président and what he does, that full and thorough coverage which is so essential to the workingsof our System of government, becomes almost an im-possibility without some form of coopération. By coopération I do not mean determining what is news.. . . (This détermination) belongs to the reporters whogather the facts, to the rewrite men who rewrite thefacts, to the copy desk men who write the heads, to theeditors . . . and to the publishers."The new White House Press Secretary was bornAugust 5, 1917, in East Chicago, Indiana. His familymoved briefly to Duluth, but Mr. Reedy attended aChicago elementary school and was graduated fromSenn High School. His father, who died in 1953, awidely known police reporter on the Chicago Tribuneduring the Capone era, later went to Washington,where he was a radio commentator, correspondent forthe Philadelphia Inquirer and writer on the Washington Times-Herald.The son continued in his footsteps, with a summerstint on the Philadelphia Inquirer in 1938, before join-ing the Washington Bureau of the United Press in theautumn. From 1942 to 1946, Mr. Reedy served as anintelligence officer with the USAF on Guam, Saipanand Iwo Jima, having the rank of captain when hewas demobilized. After this service he returned to theUP as a House and Senate correspondent until SenatorJohnson drafted him. His wife, the former LillianGreenwald of New York City, holds a law degree fromFordham University and was on the InternationalNews Service staff until her marriage.

In the ten yearssince assuming this apparently hopelessposition, he has refashioned Shimerinto an expérimental collège of uniquecharacter, nationally recognized for itsteaching excellence, its intellectualatmosphère, and its démonstration thatcurricular transfer between dissimilarinstitutions is feasible.Shimer Collège had suffered declin-ing enrollments and grave financial dif-ficulties over a number of years preced-ing Mr. Mullin's administration.

The Medal being conferred is the forty-eighth.warned that Shimer would probably notreopen for the next term; but the crisiswas met.From thèse troubled beginnings, Mr.Mullin has led Shimer to the peaks ofscholarly accomplishment among libéralarts collèges. The médian scores madeby Shimer senior classes of the past sixyears hâve been the highest of ail 297collèges and universities which admin-istered the Graduate Record Examina-tion to their entire graduating classes in1958 or 1961. Shimer classes hâve,moreover, ranked first on ail threetested areas of the GRE (humanities,natural sciences, and social sciences).The collège was described by George C.Stern, writing in the Harvard Educa-tional Review last year, as one of elevenin the United States with an idéal intellectual climate.Of still greater ihterest to educatorsis the démonstration that a curriculumdesigned for one institution can betransferred to another with comparablemeasurable effects on student achieve-ment. The Shimer curriculum is a linealdescendent of the University of ChicagoCollegeplanof 1931-54. In both locales, testing data were accumulated from thestart. This unusual chance to comparetwo instances of the same curricularexperiment has occasioned continuingstudies through which Shimer may u'ti-mately hâve educational import far outof proportion to its size.There seems little doubt that Shimer'sexcellence today is the deed of its président, whose leadership of mind andspirit hâve been as ample as his practi-cal abilities. The esprit de corps in theShimer faculty is so great that teachershâve often refused salary raises to helpthe collège maintain fiscal stability. In1963, Mr. Mullin's faculty voluntarilyincreased its teaching load so that classsize might be kept low, in a time of ex-panding enrollment, without adding ad-ditional teachers to the collège budget.Mr. Mullin, a physiologist, was Deanof the Chicago Médical Collège in1951-54. Previously he had been amember of the University of Chicagofaculty, last as dean of students in theDivision of Biological Sciences. He hasrecently been honored by élection tothe presidency of the Fédération of Illinois Collèges.16 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE JUNE, 1964JUDGE AUSTIN MRS. BARNETT MRS. BERG MRS. BIEKER MRS.

Szanton. . . we must learn before we can teachUpon return to the United Statesafter nineteen months in the Philippines, I discovered that the popularconception of the Peace Corps wasquite similar to what mine had been,and that of my fellow volunteers,prior to our departure overseas. Itwas seen as a means of sendingyoung Americans abroad to help inthe "modernization" of the ' under-developed" countries. The Volunteers were to teach, build roads,work in hospitals, do agriculturalextension and community development work, ail to raise the standardof living of the host countries. Formost of us at that time and for mostAmericans today, such are the func-tions of the Peace Corps. And tosome slight extent they are.The problem with this image isthat most Americans tend to thinkof an "underdeveloped" country asa tabula rasa, a nearly blank slate,in which modem (American) institutions need only be introduced,and that good-will, hard work andtechnical know-how will fast see itthrough to prosperity. What wetend to forget is that thèse countriesare "underdeveloped" only in économie terms— or better yet, in termsof our own peculiar form of économie organization. In fact, ail thecountries in which Volunteers areworking hâve highly complex économie Systems — they obviouslycould not hâve survived withoutthem— as well as political, social, artistic and religious traditions oftenconsiderably older and more firmlyentrenched than our own. The community in which I worked— similarto those of innumerable other volunteers— was an extremely complexaggregate of individuals, familiesand larger groupings, each withtheir own interests to protect andadvance, highly sophisticated inmotivation and behavior, togethercreating a culture unlike anythingwe had known in America.Such a community is no tabularasa. In fact, the only way in whicha volunteer can begin to functioneffectively in a community wherevalues, attitudes and behavior oftenbear little relation to his "normal"American expectations, is to standstill, look and listen. If the volunteer is to be successful at ail, hemust begin as the tabula rasa, hemust be willing to say, "I knownothing, tell me, teach me aboutyour community." The project towhich he is assigned is likely to beworthless if it does not correspondto a real problem felt by the community and his co-workers. To dis-cover what is really of concern tothem takes time and in most cases,considérable facility with the locallanguage which, of course, takesstill more time to develop.But it is not only the Volunteerwho needs time to corne to knowhis community, his hosts need timeto corne to know him, to trust him with their deep-felt concerns. He isa foreigner, at best an honoredguest, and often seems an emissaryof a central government perhapsotherwise known for its tax collections, unkept promises and toooften, corrupt politicians. Certainlythe volunteer is to be treated withrespect— he is obviously powerful—but in fact that means being keptat arm's distance until he has some-how proven himself to be genu-inely, personally concerned aboutthe welfare of his hosts. Then perhaps free conversation, a real dialogue will begin, perhaps then thevolunteer can start to contributesomething to his community.How much time do thèse preli-minaries take? It varies of course,but generally it can take eightmonths to a year. Since volunteersare usually overseas for only twentymonths, not much time is left forthe great accomplishments whichmany had originally set out toachieve. Much can be done, but notas much as the enthusiastic volunteer had probably hoped for. Ofequally great importance, if noteven greater, is the intellectual, social and human development of thevolunteers themselves. It is an éducation in our own "underdevelop-ment," in the variety and complex-ity of the world's problems and inthe personal responsibilities ofevery individual.

"I am not an early Christian," he writes. "I amthe type that, if Nero threw me naked into the amphitheater,would work out a way to harass the lions."The lions he has harassed in thèse many years hâve beennumerous, and he has left their bleeding carcasses strewnail over the pages of this wonderful book. Sample: "Theslogan at the recruiting stations is The Army Builds Men'. . . What the Army builds is one-legged men, armless men,paralyzed men, psychotic men, and dead men."But if there is anger and strong irony in this volume, thereis also Mayer' s parti cular kind of wild fun, best put to useagainst the lions in ail ranks of omcialdom and government.And when Milton Mayer makes a hero of a man, that figurebecomes warmly, unforgettably alive, as in the section wrylytitled "Dangerous Men," a glowing gallery comprised ofRobert Morss Lovett, one of the University of Chicago' svaliants, Red Schaal of the Peace Section of the AmericanFriends Service Committee and A. J. Muste, "truest of paci-fists" as executive secretary of the Fellowship of Reconciliation.Mayer — agrée or disagree with him in whole or in part —is vital to us ail, and it is a dutiful pleasure to be a shill forhis book.22 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE JUNE, 1964news of theHood on New ShouldersAt a brief ceremony followingconvocation on June 12, the doctoral hood of the late GeorgeH.

He and a GM inspector are shown giving this transmission a final check. In additionto keeping an eagle eye on every phase of manufacturing, the quality control engineer isclosely concerned with preliminary design and engineering. More than 13,000 individualparts go into a GM car, and every one must be as reliable as men and machines can make it.Raw materials, components, subassemblies — ail get meticulous scrutiny. Tolérances towithin fifty mïllionths of an inch are commonplace.Among GM production employés, about one of every twelve dévotes full time to quality controlor inspection. Approximately 50,000 inspections are involved in the building of a single car.In addition, every machine operator has the responsibility for the quality of his work andperformance of his machine. He can accept or reject any part he makes. His work is checkedby the quality control engineer and the inspector, who'analyze machine capabilities andpredict machine inaccuracy before it occurs — not after.They're mighty important people, thèse GM quality control engineers. They hâve an exactingjob, and they take pride in doing it well. GM products bear witness to their effectiveness.GENERAL MOTORS IS PEOPLE...Making Better Things For You
